Disputed 18 January 1879 2-1 vs. Wales, Surrey Cricket Ground, The Oval, Kennington, London match 60 mins long

Newspaper reports conflict on who was the actual captain against Wales on 18 January 1879, in spite of the match lasting only for one hour.  Three reports, The Field, The Sportsman and Football Annual give the captaincy to Arthur Cursham, whilst The London Times, Athletic News and Bell's Life, gives it to Henry Wace.  The fact that Charles Alcock's own Football Annual lists Cursham makes us want to favour the Notts County forward, but one can never be sure and we will not commit ourselves with any degree of certainty.
